Keaveny: It's Time for St. Louis to Be Counted

We're counting on you to be counted, St. Louis.

March marks the start of the 2010 U.S. Census, which is scheduled to be mailed the week of March 15. I'm asking that you fill out the form as fast as possible, and send it back in the postage paid envelope right away. It's one of the most important things you can do for our community and our state, because the federal government uses these numbers to distribute more than $400 billion dollars to states and cities for things like schools, housing developments, streets and much more.

The form contains only 10 basic questions and shouldn't take too much of your time. If you haven't responded by May, the census will send workers to your home to ask you the same questions on the census form in person. Please remember that no personal information will be shared with any agency other than the census, and that census takers would never ask for banking information or Social Security numbers.

Census workers are still needed. If you're interested, here's the important information:

It is estimated that the City of St. Louis will lose $1,300 per year for every person not counted in the census. Please make filling out your census form a priority for your family and everyone you know. Remember, we are counting on you to be counted.

For any additional questions on the census, please call Josh Wiese at 314-613-7025 or email him at wiesej{at}stlouiscity{dot}com. He is the census point person in Mayor Francis Slay's Office and is happy to answer questions and provide more information about the census.
